Orbiting hell's orchard intrigued but not compelled
Hell’s orchard is Earth in this line and is in direct opposition to Heaven’s orchard, also known as the Garden of Eden. In the Bible, the Lord forbids Adam & Eve from eating the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil. However, the Devil tricks Adam & Eve into eating the fruit which eventually leads to the banning of humans from God’s garden.
Aesop is saying that he sees the evil and hurt all around him in life and even though he wants to challenge himself and face the problems directly, he does not act on this urge. He would rather hide behind his constructed defenses rather than experience both the good and bad things in hell’s orchard.
